CocoBase® and Oracle9i Application Server Instantly Generate Transparent Persistence, CMP/BMP Entity EJBs, Session Beans and JSPs

San Francisco, CA. March 27, 2002 - THOUGHT Inc.®, The Dynamic O/R Mappingtm Company, announces CocoBase® Enterprise O/R, Version 4, optimization for Oracle9i Application Server (Oracle9iAS). With the combined solution, Java developers can easily develop and deploy transactional applications on Oracle9iAS and seamlessly access and store mission critical information in the industry leading Oracle9i Database, making it easier for developers to build e-business applications requiring Java and SQL.

CocoBase® is a Dynamic O/R Mapping
tm layer that runs on Oracle9i Application Server and manages entry and retrieval of data in the relational database. This reduces the need to hand-code database access for transactional Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) applications. Dynamically creating database access information at runtime, CocoBase® and Oracle9iAS allow Java applications to perform and scale with reusable flexibility.

"Oracle9i Application Server is an ideal platform for building Internet applications," said Thomas Kurian, senior vice president, Oracle9i Application Server at Oracle Corporation. "CocoBase® and Oracle9iAS bridge the gap between Java and SQL developers, making it easy to develop and deploy transactional applications using Java."

"Adding support for the Oracle9i Application Server expands the solutions available for our customers," said Ward Mullins, CTO of THOUGHT Inc.® "CocoBase's® powerful mapping technology makes it easy for developers to handle complex, enterprise-level data mapping requirements."
